Dates that forever changed our lives

I'm so excited to be posting my first project made with my new Silhouette Cameo! :)
I've been wanting a Cameo for some time, but I already have the Cricut Imagine and kept telling myself I don't need two cutting machines.  I finally took the plunge and got the Cameo and
This machine is so amazing and a whole lot portable then the Imagine.
I feel like there are so many more possibilities with the Cameo.
This project was created for my friends 40th birthday and I was inspired by a pin I saw on Pinterest.
This was so fun to give as a gift because then I got to hear the story of how her and her husband met.  We became friends in 2002 and I never knew their story.
  I designed this project in Silhouette Studio.
I printed the sheet that went inside the frame using the hombre effect on the dates.
 I then printed the dates again on printable Square1 Masterpiece then cut them so I can adhere them on the glass to create a dimensional look.  This product amazed me at how easy it was to use and if I misplaced a number I just peeled it right up to fix it.
I am so excited to be using Square1 Masterpiece as I signed up for their amazing Designer Program.
I can't wait to create more projects with this material.
Here are a few closer views to help see the text a bit better.

 I will be submitting this to the Silhouette Challenge:  Use Numbers
This will also be getting Linked to Link Up Tuesday at Sarah Hamer Designs.
I'm so excited to be posting to my blog again and can't wait to share more projects I create with my Silhouette Cameo!
Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Turned out really great! I have been thinking of trying to put one of these together myself. Did you follow a tutorial or just put it together on your own?

    1. Thanks Colleen! I just put it together on my own. I searched it on Pinterest and pulled a few different ideas to make it my own. :)

  2. I love this! What a great 1st cameo project. This turned out fabulous.
